Magic Moments // Hot Wax and Wet Wipes


Magic Moments

Bouyed by my recent makey-doo experiences with Harry, I jumped at the offer from a friend to take our children to the Cheshire Candle Factory.  We thought we would spend a good part of the day there and paid for the package which consisted of making a candle, decorating a candle holder, making a sand ornament, and painting a […]

Magic Moments // First Bake Off


Magic Moments

I’ve been meaning to do a bit more “makey-do” stuff with Harry so when I was out shopping and spotted The Good Dinosaur Cake Packet Mix, it was a complete no-brainer what our next mum and son activity was going to be. The Good Dinosaur was the first film that we took Harry to see and we all […]

Magic Moments // New Season Same Fun


Magic Moments

It’s here.  It’s the time of the year I look forward to so much.  It is the start of Spring which means it’s time to pitch our caravan back down the coast.  My definition of happiness has to involve a caravan in there somewhere.  I love it.  It is our space where we just strip back all the complexities of life, put […]

Magic Moments // Winter Clear Up


Magic Moments

It only takes a few days of sunshine for me to start thinking about summer evenings sitting out in the back garden, catching the last few rays of the day, enjoying the warmth of the sun on my face.  And then I look out of the kitchen window and I come back to earth with a bump. My back garden […]

Magic Moments // Oops a Daisy


Magic Moments

Harry just can’t seem to keep himself out of the wars.  He has been constantly falling over his own feet.  I thought it was because his new trainers were too big but a friend told me it could just be that he is growing and losing his balance as everything recalculates.  It is an interesting theory […]

Magic Moments // A Winter Walk


Magic Moments

Last weekend we went for a walk with Taid Bobby to a nature trail not far from where we live.  The rain had stopped, the sun had come out, but the wind was still a little on the sharp side so we made sure we were all dressed up nice and warm.  With the amount […]

Magic Moments // The Islands Chester Zoo


Magic Moments

We have an annual pass for Chester Zoo and we spend quite a lot of our time there as a family.  So when I saw that Channel 4 had made a programme about The Secret Life of Chester Zoo I immediately had it on series record.  I have always been fascinated about what goes on behind the scenes and the programme […]

Magic Moments // Splash Landings


Magic Moments, Reviews

We have just got back from an overnight stay at the Alton Towers Hotel.  We stayed on a mid week deal that included bed and breakfast and free entrance to the waterpark, all for only £65.  Check-in is from 3pm but when we arrived at midday we were told that our room was available.  We had a standard room to sleep 4, […]

Magic Moments // Peppa Pig Live


Magic Moments

I stupidly made the mistake of telling H we were off to see Peppa Pig the moment we woke up.  For 2 hours, at approx 5 minutes intervals, all I heard was “go see Peppa Pig now”.  The first few times it was endearing and then it just became irritating.  We picked up his friend (and her Mummy) […]

Magic Moments // Scooter


Magic Moments

It hasn’t been the best of weeks.  Harry has been ill for most of it so my husband and I have had to take it in turns to have time off work to look after him.  He just has not been able to shift this cold now for what feels like months.  On Monday I was treated […]
